    Logitech Announces K750 Light-Powered Wireless Keyboard

    +1 for the review. Very sexy and if I was looking for a wireless keyboard, this would be it. Although my cave is pretty dark and even monitor light won't help as keyboard goes under the desk :( But I guess it would be 4months use with the very low ambient light, or based on Mussels' post 4...

    Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 mini review and support

    Thanks for the totally false comment! :toast: Well ugly is in the eye of the beholder, won't dispute that. Brutal force as in big?, then yes. High rpm :confused: You obviously haven't ever owned one. It runs about 1400rpm idle or load silent, what can't be said from stock cooler. If you...

    TPU's GTX460 Club

    Try to game a bit too if you get a second one :laugh: Too much gaming awesomeness going to waste with 2 if they just fold :p Yesterday hit my first 1080p gaming, still goes strong, but picked up the lag/under 70% usage in BC2, so going to try the beta drivers to remedy that.

    Uh, enjoy :toast: (how much did it go for there?) You'll get used to it soon :) Also try not to have force on max, or tomorrow you'll notice that you found new muscles in your back :laugh: Oh and some general, stick 5% dead zone on steering, 50% for linearity, for linear steering (not...

    Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 mini review and support

    Love it, fast already on stock (well that's an OC), overclocks like mad and keeps cool/silent. So just like 280 with accelero, but without the powerdraw/heat output + DX11 and faster :) When you consider I sold OP card with postage for 200€ and I got this without postage almost for same...

    KFA2 Intros GeForce GTX 480 ''Anarchy'' Graphics Card

    Not all 460s are created equal, sell those and get stock cooler version or Gigabyte one. Mine stays under 70C and is silent. As for OP, still no Accelero reviews yet, but based on past experience no way will this go to 90C. Those coolers will sell nicely and these that come with it stock should...

    So you want SDD for CHEAP? I HAZ THE ANSWER!

    Seems it doesn't work as a SSD, just removable storage. http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Default.dx/sku.19384~threadid.425212 So you're better of buying this instead (I have it). http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.30085

    So you want SDD for CHEAP? I HAZ THE ANSWER!

    So, how would this differ from CF to IDE adapter? Does it actually use write leveling, or it's just a card adapter in a fancy package that will burn out the card in no time at all. But could be nice for those early netbooks with 4GB SSD, with this you could double the space quite cheap :)...

    Hmm, what where the VRM temps to begin with then ?) Ah, but it's the new 55nm version of the 216, it doesn't have volterras any more :) You shouldn't even get VRM temperature readout with that card :) Normal heatsinks are just fine for the regular mosfets. 65nm cards just had those hot and hard...

    AOC Europe Introduces New WLED-lit Full-HD Monitors

    Oh the sillyness, now it's 20M to 1, thought 8M to 1 was already pushing it. Sad that 19,999,000:1 of that contrast ratio is unusable, as the real contrast ratio is still under 1000:1. On the upside, I like those plantstemfigures on the base and back :)

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 Clubhouse

    Well there were lots of servers that had rules of no bunny hopping=hence no real issue, was mentioning it more as it was an issue as it wasn't allowed. Spotting is nice, not getting sniped to face when the shooter simply couldn't have seen you is not ;) Remove triangles, let spotted enemies...

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 Clubhouse

    I don't get why people had any problems in BF2142 with bunny hopping. You jump you can't shoot until your feet hit the ground. So you have an opponent thats not shooting at all, how is that bad?! Now if the whine is about a moving target should we also ban horizontal movement as in running...

    $50 for unlocked multiplier would be more fun :) Would be no need to release those "K" processors, enthusiasts would just do this for their current CPU.

    Gigabyte's First Black-PCB Motherboards: P67A-UD5 and P67A-UD7

    They look good, although my babyblue has grown in with me. Yes I'd trade my motherboard for P67A-UD3, if someone offered, but skipping the whole 1155. 1154 will come next year anyways.. :p Hehee, they said the same about 1156 before release, you can't overclock them. And what happened with...

    Nice, seems it's 1C better than my current tube of Noctua NT-H1. Didn't like the dryness of MX-3, so didn't even try. Oh and the price wasn't nice either compared to MX-2. Got to get me a tube, although with this rate MX-5 will be out before I need one.. :D Well maybe not, seems like this came...

    Gigabyte Readies GeForce GTS 450 Duo

    Same cooler on that card as in mine (GTX 460). A bit of overkill maybe, but that card will be silent no matter how much you overclock :D Ah yes, it's only on the OC model, with that price difference no point of getting the stock card. The cooler is worth much more that 10$ :)
